Chris Hayes from MSNBC talks to Michael E Mann about global warming deniers and the season we call “winter.” Release with full segment URL

Chris Mooney in MotherJones:

1. Statements about climate trends must be based on, er, trends. Not individual events or occurrences. Weather is not climate, and anecdotes are not statistics.

2. Global warming is actually expected to increase “heavy precipitation in winter storms,” and for the northern hemisphere, there is evidence that these storms are already more frequent and intense, according to the draft US National Climate Assessment.

3. Antarctica is a very cold place. But global warming is affecting it as predicted: Antarctica is losing ice overall, according to the latest report of the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change. However, sea ice is a different matter than land-based or glacial ice. Antarctic sea ice is increasing, and moreover, the reason for this may be climate change! (For more, read here.)

This “ship in the ice” story is making the denier rounds. It’s ironic
because it only shows how uninformed they are. They don’t understand the
difference between the volume of ice and the extent of ice. It’s actually
the warmer ocean and wind patterns around Antarctica that has caused to ice
to move out into the ocean were a summer cold snap was able to trap the
ship. The deniers are having a ball because of the irony that the
expedition was there to study climate change.
To deniers: yuck it up fuzz balls while you can for soon your balloon will
burst.

It’s a downside to be able to get to the oil beneath arctic sea ice! Those
reporters don’t think!

I didn’t even realize that climate extremists still existed in 2014. I
guess since global warming was proven to be a fraud, they are now claiming
that cooling is caused by c02? Talk about trying to have it both ways…the
only constant is change on planet earth.
